QCA presents: Researching and Developing Your Funding Network as part of the Build Your Own Business (BYOB) Workshop Series.
Join representatives from New York Foundation for the Arts and City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer’s office alongside individual artist Mark Salinas for a moderated conversation about the local and national funding landscape.
Individual artists and non profit organizations will develop techniques and best practices for determining and approaching appropriate funding sources, including government, foundation, private and corporate support. Participants will develop the language they use to frame their work in various contexts, and learn what it takes to establish and sustain fruitful relationships with granting organizations, government offices and corporate sponsors. The first 12 artists to register for both sessions will have the opportunity to have a letter of interest to a funder reviewed during the second session of the workshop.
Part I on Nov 13, 6-8pm & Part II on Dec 4, 6-8pm
